Like my LJ says numerous times over:
My name is Loren. I'm soon starting my senior year in high school, and I'm applying to the American University of Beirut (or WILL be as soon as they get their new applications up...). It's been my dream to go there since I was thirteen.
My family lived in Beirut for 25 years, before they were forced to leave the country.... My father grew up there, my uncles grew up there, my grandmother still cooks Lebanese food and my grandparents still speak to each other in Arabic sometimes. Even though I've never lived in Lebanon myself, I love it, as everyone does, and I do want to experience living there for myself.
I've made this journal specifically to chronicle my process of getting to Lebanon, and afterwards, living there, inshalla.
Please add me, if you like.
